Edmund Optics has introduced its new Techspec line of high resolution, large format lenses. These high performance imaging lenses offer excellent resolution and are designed specifically for line scan and large area scan cameras. The lenses cover up to a 62mm large format sensor to accommodate a wide variety of applications.
The lenses offer a maximum aperture of F4, which provides twice the amount of light throughput of comparable lenses at F5.6. These large format lenses are designed to reduce chromatic aberrations while yielding stunning sharpness and contrast, even at maximum aperture. They are offered in seven standard lens options at nominal magnification values of 0.33x to 3.0x, with performance extending over a range around these magnification values. The lens cell features a locking variable iris and front filter threading for ease of use. Several focusing and mounting options are available to accommodate most camera interfaces for many of the magnification options.
The lenses feature a robust optical design that is able to achieve a wide magnification range around the stated nominal value. Custom magnifications in lower volumes are available upon request from EO's applications engineering department. Thee lenses are suitable for a variety of diverse applications including web inspection, flat panel (LCD, plasma and solar) inspection, factory automation and food and beverage inspection.
